This post was first seen on Fit Moms Denver and is my 4th out of 8 posts documenting the journey to get my body back via the Body Back program with FIT4MOM Front Range. My experience is unique, because in addition to being a participant in the program, I’m also the instructor! It’s pretty awesome.
BODY BACK WEEK 4
At Assessments: 157.6 lbs
At the beginning of Week 4: 153 lbs
Total weight change: -4.6 lbs
At the end of Week 4:
-Chest: 38” – a 1.5” change
-Waist: 32” – a .75” change
-Hips: 40” – a .5” change
-Thigh: 24.75” – a .25” change
My baby is now 2 months old, and I’m feeling better and better every day. As many moms know, nursing can really mess up weight loss on the scale, but it won’t prevent me from working my bootie off and gaining strength. I’m also, of course, hoping the weight keeps sliding down. I’d like to get to 148 lbs by the end of the session.
I felt so much better fitness-wise this week! I really worked hard, and my spirits really lifted because of it.
Monday: Rest day
Tuesday: Body Back class – I was able to get in about 60% of the workout
Wednesday: 2x through the Cry to Mama workout
Thursday: 1x through Plyometric Party workout and 1x through Plank Fun workout
Friday: 90% of a BB HIIT workout with the ladies. 12 min run/3 min walk x3 with 5k group
Saturday: Did the pre-run workout at the March for Babies
Sunday: 2 mile walk, 3 hours standing waiting for our FIT4MOM 1/2 Marathoners and Amy’s (FIT4MOM Front Range owner) Marathon finish! Here’s a tip: if you need motivation to get a run in, head to the finish line of a race. Voila! Also on Sunday, I ran with my 5k group: 1 mile run/3 mins walk x3 and did 90% of a BB HIIT workout
Here was my view at the Colorado Marathon… oh look! There’s Amy finishing 26.2 miles!
Overall, I think I did pretty well! I DID succeed in adding more veggies to both my lunch and dinners. The dark chocolate-covered fruit ran out, so good-bye to that (not even sad)! I made one large batch of WW pancakes, and was the only one to eat them, so they lasted forever. Although an ok choice, the peanut butter and maple syrup mix wasn’t stellar to have everyday. I’d prefer more lean protein in my breakfast to get a better start on the day.
OK, I have a confession. I LOVE BRIE. I have a friend named Brie, and it really might be a tie as to which brie I love more… 🙂 However, when I eat it, I try to make it a small snack. I just had to get that out before you saw my food log.
Feeling great as I move on to an even better week in Week 5.
